A police source told TMZ that Ortiz-Magro slapped and punched his 33-year-old girlfriend, who fled from the house calling for help.AdvertisementPauseUnmuteLoaded: 0%Progress: 0%Remaining Time-1:01Fullscreen

Authorities did confirm a taser was required to take the suspect into custody and that he was being held on suspicion of felony domestic violence.
If convicted on the felony charge he faces up to four years in prison.
